I'm helping to install an above ground pool. We leveled the ground. This left a 22" berm on the high side. We left an extra foot of space between the berm and the pool edge, but we're concerned it's going to eventually creep down hill and put pressure on the side of the pool. How big of an issue is this? Will the water pressure counter the creep, or will the hill push into the side of the pool? What is a cheap way to handle this? (It's a $200 kiddie pool, 48" deep. It's not worth spending thousands of dollars.) The soil is loam and clay with a few 4" size stones. It's on a naturally level spot on the side of a mountain in WV. The current front runner solutions are: To dig it out every year or two. Build a fence using 4X4s and 5/8ths lumber, then fill the backside with dry quickcrete. Ignore the problem.
